Wanted to see how many people would fall for it and make the click.

Gotta lotta lookers.
I guess I just assumed some Lions made it. I know NINE (9) Eagles are on the team. Seriously. No Lions? That's crazy to think that could happen.
The way people are dropping out, it could happen! Jason Hanson maybe?
I think Louis Delmas was probably the best player. Hanson was actually somewhat human this year (21 for 28 FG).
Too bad there are 11 receivers in the NFC with more yards and 20 receivers in the NFC with more touchdowns.
Which sucks. I know we can't deal in "what ifs", but I'm pretty sure if he was on a halfway decent team he would be there because his stats would be way better.
I'm actually going to watch this year for three reasons.
1. Lots of Eagles in it.
2. I'm actually interested in the NFL again since I switched teams.
3. About time they put it BEFORE the Super Bowl when interest is super high.
From what I heard they are going back to Hawaii after the Super Bowl next season
I can't find anything on it either way. I was under the impression that if it works this year they plan to continue it. Why wouldn't they?

"The results: increased media coverage and the best attendance in 51 years, with a sellout crowd of more than 70,000 expected."
I will repay, thus sayith the buckeye.
They mentioned it on SportsCenter when they were interviewing some players in tomorrrow's game
I've been wanting to do that for the past couple of years. I just can't bring myself to do it. Everyone out here (New England) teases me saying I should just root for the Pats. The problem is I dispise the Pats due to the fans and their attitude. I was in my glory when they blew the 07 season. I'll probably give the Lions another 10 years. If they can't shape it up by then I'll think about picking a new team 10 years after that. Come to think of it I should just say I'm going to re-evaluate my alligences every year and end up sticking with Detroit because next year will be "their year". lol
I'd root for the Lions before New England too.
I think someone at ESPN wants it to be in Hawaii because everything from ESPN says that it will "surely be back in Hawaii next year". Yet they have more attendance and interest than they ever have or will in Hawaii. That equals $$$. Of course, the tradeoff is that the best players in the Superbowl aren't there, which diminishes the product on the field. Of course, if noone is watching the product in Hawaii, does it matter?
This sums it up pretty good although I think it is a wait and see type deal.

Basically the move is "good for the league and bad for the players". The players like the free Hawaii vacation better. The league likes the revenue and exposure.
Guess who is gonna win this "battle"???
This is why I love McNabb. He's just an all around good guy. My favorite players gotta be good citizens as well as good athletes. He's my favorite pro athlete.
Football - Donovan McNabb (Philadelphia Eagles)
Hockey- Vincent LeCavalier (Tampa Bay Lightning)
Baseball-Chase Utley-(Philadelphia Eagles)
Basketball-Here I admittedly broke my own rules. I guess D. Wade but he's kind of a jerk. I also like C. Anthony and liked Arenas until the gun thing. I don't really like basketball much these days anyhow.

I actually like the New England Patriots, but then I like U of M football.
Having the Pro Bowl anytime near the end of the year is stupid. They should make it one week before the opening of pre season football. Since it would occour during August, they could play the game in Toronto or another northern city. Anyplace opposite of where the Super Bowl is played.
